A brief message from our president

Erik Rasmussen, President of the Board of Trustees, shares his thoughts on this year’s Partnership for Education.

“It’s true that a student may have an internet connection, but is the connection at a level where this student could fully engage and be successful?”

~Chris Lennox, Superintendent, Mounds View Public Schools

Technology: An Equity Conversation

The District and Foundation Partnership

A Student’s Take: Roshan

"There's an assumption that all students have reliable and capable Internet in their home and their place where they're working on their schoolwork. We found both within our district, Mounds View Public Schools, as well as our surrounding districts and in talking to colleagues, that's not always the case.”

~Dr. Jeff Ridlehoover, Assistant Superintendent, Mounds View Public Schools

“Even if you have Wi-Fi and everybody's going to school at the same time doing distance learning, the signal becomes weak, and it causes chaos among the kids.”

~Angel Toro, Integration & Equity Liaison, Mounds View Public Schools

Student impact

Megan Brodeur, BSW LSW

Pinewood Elementary Dean/Social Worker

"It was incredibly reassuring throughout the most difficult stretches of distance learning to know that the district was committed to providing resources and support to students and families. Even when hotspots weren't available and other internet options were off the table for Pinewood families, I could communicate with confidence that we would stick with them until we could find a solution. I've felt supported by the district in the effort to provide equitable access to distance learning ever since the pandemic started, and I've seen firsthand how that support has made all the difference for many Pinewood students."

Katie Hoffman

Associate Principal, Bel Air Elementary School

"A success that stands out to us is a family who didn't have any internet, who are immigrants from Somalia, and their student has physical disabilities. Our dean and EL teacher worked closely to translate instructions on how to set up and use the hot spot so that the student could access daily instruction from her sped and gened teacher. She went from never being online to making it to many of her classes."
